Greetings friends! I'm a Canadian who want this game really, really badly. The problem with the pledging is that right now it would be "140 coins" (100 for the game + expansion, 40 for shipping), which would be 140 Canadian bucks - and as some of you know, the exchange rate has not been kind to us Canadians lately.

I was wondering if anyone here knows of a way how to reduce the cost of pledging for just the game, or if there was a way of getting just the game and the expansion.

Or should I just wait for retail (assuming that Canada gets retail copies). (It would be nice to confirm that Canada will get retail versions of this).

Either split the cost of multiple copies between friends to save on postage, or wait for local retail.

and buy the game in store when it hits canadian shelf.

I'm not seeing an option to do this on the Battlecon website. It's forcing me to select one of the main pledge items.

Maybe that was only for KS backers?

Correct... The promo option went away once the Kickstarter ended.

The best place for us Canucks to purchase the new "hotness" of games is at 401games.ca I am actually lucky enough to live 45 mins outside Toronto so I am able to frequent the brick and mortar store occasionally, but honestly they always get games upon release date and their prices are by far the cheapest I've been able to find on the Internet. Plus, if you spend over $200 they add free shipping - with Millennium Blades you're probably going to be at $80-$90 already and it's releasing in January so save some Xmas money and you're set. The only way you'll find it any cheaper is if you have saved up loyalty points at another online store that you're willing to cash in.

Hey Richard, thanks for your interest in Millennium Blades! You should most certainly be able to get MB in Canada once it's available (early next year).

I use 401games all the time, they're exceptional with great prices. Reasonable shipping to the National Capital Region as well!

I was really hoping to get those promo cards, but I can't justify spending 130 US for just the base set and the promos

For promos of our own characters (those we own rights to sell) we offer them in our store for cash, just in case you can't find them elsewhere.

For those we can't sell, we offer them for reward points (you get 1 point per $1 spent on other things).

So those extra promos should be available one way or another through our store once the game comes out, have no fear.

Awesome, thank you! There's no way I can afford to pre-order now, so this is very comforting that I can purchase these later!
